Constipation: Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 ounces glasses of water per day). Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day – get that fiber in. Stay physically active with regular exercise. There are a number of over the counter laxatives that can be taken orally to help pass retained fecal matter.

How do you get rid of bloating?

Several ways: Excess fiber in relkation to your fluid intake will lead to bloating. Some foods produce a lot of gas so I would reduce legumes and leafy vegetables. Reduce carbonation and don't use straws as this leads to increased swallowing of gas and thus bloating. But increased fluids and not going overboard on fiber is the best solution.

I feel bloated immediately after consuming about a handful of cashews on an empty stomach. If that is the cause, how do I get rid of bloating?

A Handful of Dust: Forgive me for being rather simplistic but if you become bloated after eating a handful of cashews, then try half a handful and if that doesn't work, move on to another nut. I realize that cashews are delicious and incomparable but you might just have to get used to the fact that your body doesn't like them. By the way, I assume you mean roasted and not raw cashews. The raw ones are rougher on the gut

I can't seem to get rid of bloating stomach, I have a 2 year old, he was huge baby, after having him, can't get rid of bloating and lower stomach pains?

I can't seem to get rid of bloating stomach, I have a 2 year old, he was huge baby, after having him, can't get rid of bloating and lower stomach pains?

Discuss with pcp: You are too far out of the delivery for this to be related to childbirth. I would check to see if you have an abdominal wall hernia that could have resulted from the pregnancy. You obgyn can check your uterus and ovaries, you could also discuss with a gastroenterologist to see if this is related to bowel function. Intestinal problems would be a more common cause.
